Acura RSX Brake Replacement Torque Spec Reference

Notes: To remove the brake rotor screws, you will want to use an impact driver. If you're not familiar with this tool, it is essentially a screwdriver that you hit with a hammer. This forces it firmly into the head of the screw while turning it and prevents you from stripping the screws. Without this, you are likely to strip the screws and need to drill them out. Do not start this job without one.

When putting the screws back in, you'll notice below that the torque spec is very light. You just need to screw them in until they are snugly seated and no more.
